A Philippine Fiesta is like nothing else in the world. Other countries have fiestas – but they are sedate and sober affairs in comparison with the variety found in the Philippine Islands. The Fiesta, in theory, is a religious procession held in honour of the local patron saint – in practise, it combines the excitement of an English Cup final, a Spanish bull-fight, and a Chinese New Year Festival into a memorable morning of noise and colour. The patron saint is the early Pope and martyr, St. Clement.
